HI,

If you ps3 does not read any discs then:

see if the player tries to read the disc. Load a disc and listen.
Does the player make squealing noises or is it totally quiet? Squealing noises may indicate that the player is trying to synchronize with the disc but can't due to an obstruction on the lens or in the laser path inside the pickup or a defect in the pickup. This can also be caused by an intermittent signal problem due to a faulty ribbon cable.

Totally silent means that the photo sensor is not getting any usable input from the laser at all, meaning that the pickup is "blind" for lack of a better word.
This can be caused by an obstruction of the beam by foreign matter on the lens or inside the pickup all the way to a marginal or failed laser diode and/or photosensor array. This can also be caused by a bad ribbon cable with one or more severed traces.

You could try to clean the optics. This is the most common malfunction as far as i know in all disc players. It would involve taking the cover off and finding a way to expose the lense, and then cleaning it with a very gentle brush. some players have a cover for the lense that swings to the side during playing, this greatly reduces the chance of dust accumulating, but its still worth the try.

If you actually see dust on the lense, then its just that simple. clean, close, play.


It may also be worth your while to check on the small shafting that guides the carriage of the laser pickup. Dirt, grome, dust and solidified lubricant can cause stoppage of the carriage and the laser eye then fails to read the next track. Please refer to the image i have attached.

Also Make sure your box is not blowing really hot air and nothing is right behind it blocking it.. Turn it off for a few minutes and let it cool down and then give it a try playing the discs..

Sony CX355 skipping Fix


I have a Sony 300 disc changer that started randomly skipping tracks after it was 8 or 9 years old.
I tried cleaning it, no change.
I opened it up and found an adjustment screw on the reading lens carriage.
Note: It is very hard to see
It rotates approx 1 turn from stop to stop. It was centered from the factory.
I rotated it counterclockwise 1/2 turn, and it got worse.
I rotated it clockwise 1/2 turn, and it is fixed. It hasn't skipped a beat since.

Sony CDP-C910 will no longer play cds or eject changer cartridge


Mine did the same thing. My player was primarily used in the garage and the cold weather may have caused my player to do the same thing. I just fixed my player. I removed the top cover and looked at the CD in the play position. In the upper right corner from the CD, you will see a spindle motor with a belt on it. Gently spin the motor back and forth carefully with your finger. I rotated it a half-spin in either direction, careful not to dislodge the belt. When I turned the player back on, the mechanism operated as it normally would and began playing the disc. I was able to eject and reinsert the magazine without any issues, solving the problem. Hopefully that will work for you.

Discplayerwontplay open or rotate


You will need to take off the surround metal and look down into the disc changer. There are gears mixed with small belt drives that are used to open and rotate the disc changer. If the teeth of the gear or the rubberbands are snapped this will cause the player to not work properly.


Please accept if this helpful.

CANNOT OPEN PLAYER


To open the drawer, unplug the unit while the power is on (so that the drawer doesn't try to open on its own). Keeping the unit flat on a table, look underneath and find the small hole where you can turn the loading gear. Rotate it until the unit opens, using a standard flat screwdriver. The loading gear is a white plastic part with a slot in it. You should be able to see it rotate if you move the drawer by hand.

After manually removing the disc, turn the gear with your screwdriver until the drawer is all the way in, The gear should be able to be turned for three or four more turns when the drawer stops loading. If it doesn't, turn it a bit further unit it "pops" past one more gear notch. It should then turn freely for a few more turns, at this point you should stop. Do not force it once it stops the second time. This is the "Disc Loaded" position.

Power the unit back up and see if it loads a disc and plays correctly.

Rotary table on Sony CDP-CX225 200 disc changer will not rotate


I think CD Mechanism needs service and might required belts replacement.
You need to get service manual of your CDX-C225 model to do this job as manual contains all technical info about mechanism etc.

Cant play


Not a solution as much as clues. I was given a SL PD588 by a friend 'cuz it stopped working. When I got around to checking it out it worked fine. Later it quit. It would rotate the turntable, load up a disc when you hit play, try to play the disc, fail, go to the next disc, etc. I pulled the cover, watched it try, could hear the lens seeking focus but the spindle wouldn't kick in and rotate. After cleaning the lens with no luck, my teenage observer decided he would spin the disc himself and maybe faster would help. Damn, if it didn't work. Sort of reminding the unit what it was supposed to do. However, not a permanent fix, 'cuz periodically it would forget and quit again. I would repeat the drill, basically giving it an assist to rotate the disc (clockwise), (maybe a few times) and it would be back functioning.
I have found the problem occurs if I leave the unit on too long, (especially in pause mode ie disc spinning, for a day or two). So I now power off when I'm thru playing discs.

Just went thru the drill again today, cover off, a little nudge to the spindle top when the disc loaded and back in business. Came to FixYa to see if anybody had an answer.

BTW, you can tell if the disc is playing correctly just by watching the track clock on the display.
Too bad the unit is so big 'cuz that means one is always stacking stuff on top of it.
Finally, and it's not like I haven't entirely dismantled this thing looking for an answer. Inside my unit is my long note on how to disassemble the mechanism.

Marantz CD48 - CD spins backwards


Check the small signal transistors BC338 and BC328, they're under the transport mech and will be near where the spindle motor plugs in to the PCB.
One of the transistors acts as a brake which momentarily puts the motor in reverse polarity to stop the CD rotating during 'stop' or 'open tray' modes. The reason the CD is spinning backwards is that the transistor which drives the spindle motor forwards during playback is faulty and is triggering the braking transistor hence spinning backwards.
The transistors should be 'BC328-25' / 'BC338-25' (25v)
Replace these and all should be well.

Hope this helps
